Dodge Fuel Drain


Filling Petrol in a Diesel Dodge is a regular mistake to make. And its remedy is based on a variety of factors. If perhaps you want to find out what it is best to do about it then please read on.
Let us discuss the most important variables to to consider whenever deciding on whether to get your car drained:

  1. What amount of Petrol have you put in the Dodge, keeping in mind that the fuel capacity of the Dodge Caliber CRD is in most cases roughly 51 litres?
    1. A small amount of Petrol, less than 2.55 litres of Petrol in a Diesel Caliber CRD will in most cases not really be a major problem. Experience has taught us that an amount less than 2.55 litres (which is approximately 5% of the fuel tank) is frequently capable of being sufficiently diluted through wholly topping up the remainder of the tank with Diesel.
      It's relatively unusual to encounter a car having difficulties due to less than 5% incorrect fuel contamination. Be aware that it is infrequent - certainly not impossible to encounter. There are a few motor vehicles that won't endure any degree of fuel contamination whatsoever.
    2. Somewhere between 2.55 and 5.1 litres of Petrol in the Dodge (5 to 10%) is more of a 50/50 condition. Our working experience has confirmed that as many motorists get away with this as those who break down. When deciding on whether or not to chance it and just simply top it up bear in mind that it is the same thing as gambling your car on black - you have a 50/50 possibility of it working.
    3. Anything in excess of 5.1 litres of Petrol in your Diesel Caliber CRD must straightaway be drained seeing as your likelihood of driving with that quantity of contamination is probably lower than one in 50 - truly huge odds.
  2. Put some Petrol in a Diesel Dodge and drove it: Have you detected any kind of performance troubles after putting the bad fuel in your Caliber CRD? In that case, get it drained regardless of the volume of Petrol or the contamination ratio. Continually running a motor vehicle that is now starting to suffer the effects of fuel contamination will probably definitely end up in even more harm affecting the fuel system parts.
  3. Do you need assurance?
    Simply get it emptied. Regardless of contamination percentage, there is inevitably a certain level of risk in connection with operating a Diesel motor on Diesel contaminated with the wrong fuel. Possible results of driving a car on the wrong fuel include things like the engine not starting, running unevenly, decrease in power, wearing of the high-pressure pump, damaged or blocked injectors, etc. These are some of the most frequently seen Petrol in Diesel signs and symptoms, and in the event that you recognise any of them stop and get it drained asap.

Petrol in Diesel Questions

When someone has put Petrol in a Diesel car they have a few very common questions. So we have compiled a list of the most Frequently Asked Questions for you

I put Petrol in a Diesel car and drove it. What do I do?


Turn off the car as soon as possible and call us. Continuing to run a vehicle on the wrong fuel can potentially damage it. We will be able to give you advice and assistance based on your circumstances

Will driving a Diesel car on Petrol cause damage to it?


It can. However, if the problem is caught and remedied quickly the risks will be minimal. Of the 1,500 vehicles we attend every month, less than 0.5% have suffered and substantial damage requiring parts replacement.

How much Petrol can I get away with in a Diesel car?


The safe answer is none. However you might be able to get away with a very low contamination ratio. That being said, we always highly recommend draining anything over a 5% contamination ratio asap.

I know about petrol in diesel, but what about Super Unleaded?


Putting Super Unleaded, or Shell V-Power, BP Ultimate Unleaded, etc, will have the exact same effect as putting regular unleaded petrol in your diesel car and will need to be drained out and flushed.

Will getting you to do a fuel drain void my warranty?


No! The EU Block Exemption Regulations clearly state that "the work can be carried out by as long as that garage uses manufacturer approved parts and correctly follows the manufacturer's service schedule."

Can I top it up with Diesel and add some 2-stroke oil?


This might work on some vehicles in some cases, but in the majority on instances it won't and you risk damaging the Lambda sensors as well as fuel pump and injectors, just as a regular misfuel.
